River Metals Recycling (RMR), Greensburg, IN is proud to “be green” and partner with the local community by supporting the Decatur County Community Foundation (DCCF) “ReLeaf” drive. RMR contributed to DCCF’s ReLeaf program, which will help replace the numerous trees lost around the greater Greensburg area during the May 2011 severe storms. With the DCCF matching program (matching all gifts received dollar for dollar up to $15,000), RMR’s gift will buy about 20 good sized trees which will be professionally planted.
RMR is deeply rooted in the communities where we do business and are respected for our sustainability and our environmentally sound practices. In fact, in 2005 River Metals Recycling achieved ISO 14001-2004 certification, the international benchmark for regulating and monitoring environmental systems for an organization. This certification emphasizes RMR’s continuing commitment to excellence. RMR’s DCCF donation exemplifies how we value the environment of the communities in which we operate and recognize its importance to our employees, their families and our continued welfare. As a recycling industry leader, protecting the environment is critical to our operations and the company’s long-term success.
